LionThunder is a lion monster working for the Dogma Kingdom and an antagonist in Kamen Rider Super-1.
He was originally Dr. Komori, a candidate for a Nobel Laureate in Japan and a former university friend of Kazuya Oki's. Apart from being a genius he was interested in martial arts, setting up a small dojo. However, he grew embittered hatred for his former friend because Kazuya once bested him in a duel. General Megirl tempts him to join Dogma to defeat Kazuya, and he is cybernetically reconstructed as LionThunder.
After beating Kazuya, he is tasked to assassinate Dr. Kotton, a potential threat to Dogma and Komori's rival candidate who the judges decided would receive the reward instead. In complete jealousy, he complies to execute this plan and sends warnings to his victim and Kazuya to try and stop him. Even with police surrounding the perimeter, he hypnotizes civilians and have them hold mirrors to deflect his laser. He destroys a dummy however. His Rainbow Beam gem is jammed by the Radar Hand Missile and he is set on fire by the Hot/Cold Hand Flamethrower. He is then finally destroyed by Super-1's Super Rider Spark Kick after which Kazuya mourns his death.

He can turn his gloved hands to claws at freewill "Raikou Hasami Tsume" as well as create a pair of cutlasses from his fangs "Dengeki Ken". His trumpcard power however is the blue gem on his forehead that fires the "Niji G Kousen". The laser has 5 different settings. The first four render hypnosis with each increasing number increasing the time the victim remains under his hypnotic command. The fifth setting enables the laser to melt through gas and cause explosions.
